Don’t Fear IRS Tax Audits

by | Apr 1, 2019

Hello- Debby Miller from Phases Business Management
I want to talk to about a serious problem that you or someone you know might face this year: an IRS audit or, worse yet, Tax Identity theft. 

Picture this: You go to your mailbox, pull everything out and then you see it—
an envelope with the return address “Internal Revenue Service” stamped on it
And this isn’t the fun one with your refund check. As you stare at the envelope, your heart starts to race, you break out in a sweat, and you start to pray that it’s not bad news. You open the letter and it’s a notice from the IRS
They are questioning items on your tax return or you’re going to be audited.
The fact is, the letter the IRS sent you is claiming you owe them money or claiming you didn’t report something properly or claiming something you reported shouldn’t have been reported.

 

They want to talk to you and ask you more questions. Are you prepared to answer them?
Or what if they say one, or even several, of your deductions were not allowed to be taken. Are you prepared to tell them otherwise?
We have a way to eliminate the stress and worry of what to do when you receive an IRS notice because, let’s face it, when it comes to the IRS, you’re guilty until proven innocent.

Here’s another scenario: what if you file your taxes and you get a notice in the mail that says, “We cannot process your income tax return because we already have one on file for you  That means that some fraudster stole your identity, mailed in a fake tax return in your name, and made off with a big fat refund check that was supposed to be yours.

How in the world are you supposed to prove that you are you?
Are you going to “wing it” by representing yourself and hope that they side with you?
More than 1,500,000 taxpayers had their tax data stolen in 2016 and 2017 with $6.2 billion fraudulently claimed.
So, yes, it happens a lot more than you realize.  Under the law, only a CPA, an attorney, or an enrolled agent besides yourself, can legally represent you before the IRS.
That’s why having Phases at your side is critical if the IRS comes knocking.

Once we file a Power of Attorney form, the IRS must deal directly with us. We handle all communications and correspondence on your behalf and, if necessary, meet with the IRS revenue agent so you don’t have to.

Many people think that IRS representation is automatically included in the tax preparation fee. Of course, if we do make an error, we will correct the issue and take responsibility for any penalties or actions with the IRS. But audit representation can range into the thousands of dollars.
With the increase of tax identity theft cases and the frequency of audits over the past years, we are concerned about your well-being and have created a new plan to protect you.

For a small fee that’s added to your tax preparation invoice, we’ll shield and protect you from ever having to deal with the IRS or State, by yourself, in case you get an audit notice or correspondence.
You never have to meet with an agent in person, we’ll attend the meeting on your behalf.
You can sleep better tonight knowing you are protected from one of your biggest nightmares.

What Clients Say

This is our second year filing our taxes through Phases. I couldn't ask for an easier process. I am the type of person who likes to have a hand in everything so I can ensure it's done right. But since I starting running my own business the tax process was simply out of my league. After filing with Phases that changed. I just drop off my taxes and get a call when they are complete. I know I can trust their experienced staff to complete my taxes correctly and in a timely manner. Thank you Phases for relieving my tax stress!

As a small business owner who is new to being self-employed, I have a million questions and the Phases staff are always prompt and thorough with their answers!

Jessica Bauer & staff at Phases Accounting are so helpful, professional, understanding & have been incredible patient with us. Tax season can be stressful & Jessica took the edge away as she prepared our 2016 taxes & helped us through the process. Thank you Jessica!! We look for ward to working with you again in the near future!!!

This last year (2016) was our second year of getting personal taxes done by Phases along with 2 businesses. Debbie has always been quick to return calls or emails as we had questions in our business startups and been very detailed in her followup. Dealing with her accounts has also always been a pleasant experience.

Can't say enough good things about Phases. They are fantastic!!!

Today for example I received a personal phone call reminding me about a sales tax reporting deadline I was procrastinating on. I gave Phases the information and then they (Christina) went one step further.....she informed me that on some of my reporting I give the office it could go to annual reporting instead of quarterly. This I know will reduce my expenses with Phases. Phases is definitely looking out for their clients and not trying to overbill them.
